Australia coach Justin Langer is confident his side can once again establish themselves as the best T20 side in the world.

This after the Aussies booked their place in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup with a convincing eight-wicket win over West Indies, on the back of David Warner’s unbeaten 89.

That result means Langer’s side finished second in Group 1, with a likely semi-final clash against Pakistan on the cards.

“Not that long ago we were the best team in the world and some of that cricket shows we can be the best team in the world,” Langer told reporters.

 “The boys have really stepped up. It was quite a sobering experience against England.

We knew we had to do some work and the way the boys responded to that has been brilliant, so it’s nice to be in the semi-final.

“You can’t win it unless you’re in the semi-final. It’s nice to be sitting here, knowing we’re in a semi-final on Thursday.”
